Tracy Grammer first achieved fame as half of the folk duo Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer. Together they released three albums of Dave’s songs before his untimely death in 2002. In the few short years that they were together their collaboration gathered rave reviews nationally, and Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer ranked number one on the year-end list for “Top Artists” on the Folk Music Radio Airplay Chart for both 2001 and 2002.
After Dave Carter’s death Tracy dedicated her considerable skills to carrying on his legacy, releasing several albums and EP’s mostly drawing on his songs, including some previously unreleased recordings by the duo. With her bright, warm, alto amber voice, and her mastery of every instrument she plays, Tracy established herself as a major talent on her own, and remains among the most beloved folk artists performing nationally. Though the Guinness Book of Records may not yet list it, Tracy Grammer holds the considerable honor for most consecutive appearances on the main stage of the annual Falcon Ridge Folk Festival.
This year marks a milestone for Tracy Grammer. She is touring following the release of her first album that almost exclusively features her own songs. “Low Tide” (called “hugely impressive” by Maverick Magazine) has remained high on the Folk-DJ Charts since January’s debut, with three of its songs ranking in the Top Ten in February alone.
“Her pure voice conveys the simple truths of these songs; her gifts as a musician are like that of a painter who is a master of chiaroscuro, offering light and shadow at every turn.” Mary Chapin Carpenter
“Tracy Grammer is a brilliant artist and unique individual. Her voice is distinctive, as is her mastery over the instruments she plays.” Joan Baez
